Gerson Therapy Skin Cancer Treatment

People diagnosed with skin cancer face many uncertainties. Topping the list is the choice treatment options available to them. Dedicated and tireless research has opened several new avenues for treating skin cancer, including Gerson therapy.

Following skin cancer diagnosis, the first step to treatment is surgical removal of the tumor. Next, tissue from the tumor will be studied in a laboratory to confirm a diagnosis. Your doctor will determine whether your skin cancer is a melanoma, or one of the other types of the disease. With the final diagnosis in hand, your doctor will then determine the next phase of your treatment.

The most common forms of treatment are chemotherapy and radiation, but other alternatives are becoming more readily available to patients. One such treatment, called Gerson Therapy, offers hope to skin cancer patients looking for an alternative to traditional treatment methods.

How to Save Your Own Skin

The rate that people develop skin cancer nowadays is regrettably reaching epidemic proportions. The reasons for this are thought to be due to changes in our lifestyle and our desire to have a sun-kissed tan. However, by baking for hours in the sun and making countless trips to the tanning salon, we are risking our health and for many of us, our lives.

The following increases your possibility of developing skin cancer:

* a close relative who has had a melanoma
* red or blond hair and/or skin that burns without difficulty
* spending at least three summers outdoors as a teenager
* three or more sunburns that have blistered before your 20th birthday
* the appearance red rough spots on parts of the body that are not exposed to the sun
* a large number of freckles on the upper back
